Survey seeks feedback on bike-share program
October 4, 2017 -
Have you used Dropbike, the bike-share system being piloted by the City of Kingston? If you have – or wanted to, but didn't – the City wants to hear from you.
"Travelling around Kingston by bike is healthy and environmentally friendly. We want our city-wide bike-share system to be convenient, economical and easy-to-use so that more people will choose it as a way to get around," says Paul MacLatchy, environment director.
The survey is available at GetInvolved.CityofKingston.ca/Bike-Share until Friday, Oct. 20.
The pilot project has been running since June and will end on Oct. 31. Dropbike's dockless bike-share system makes its signature orange bikes available in havens downtown and in the area of Queen's University. Users need to download the Dropbike app to unlock the bikes and check them back in after their rides. The bikes cost $1 an hour to use (plus security deposit).
The 10-question survey asks about residents' experience of Dropbike, where and when they think they would use a bike-share system and the preferred priorities they would like to see reflected in a city-wide bike-share system.
Feedback will be used to develop a city-wide bike-share system for Kingston.
